feast day and re­ceived his due deserts with a poor catch of a mot­ley fish. These sto­ries to­gether with the char­ac­ter­is­tic di­alect ex­pres­sions of the fish­ing com­mu­nity in­spired Robert Mor­ton Nance, Cor­nish lan­guage and di­alect ex­pert, to write the song in the 1920s. It has since be­come an es­sen­tial part of the cus­tom.

The leg­end of Tom Baw­cock was given an ad­di­tional mo­men­tum in the 1990s with An­to­nia Bar­ber’s chil­dren’s story The Mouse­hole Cat. Here Tom Baw­cock is joined on his stormy fish­ing es­capade by his loyal black and white cat, ‘Mowzer’. Mowzer saves the day by purring at the storm and calm­ing it down suf­fi­ciently for Tom to make his catch. Mouse­hole is def­i­nitely a merry place to be on Tom Baw­cock’s Eve.

Nade­lik Lowen dhewgh why oll! A Happy Christ­mas to you all!
